This is perhaps the easiest (and cutest!) craft idea EVER! I've been looking for inexpensive but stylish decorating ideas for Kate's upcoming 2nd birthday party, and I have found it! I first saw the idea on Sweet and Lovely Crafts where the author designed and decorated for a rainbow party. What a fun idea! I will be making this garland for many parties to come!
Step 1: Gather supplies
- 2 inch scallop circle paper punch (scrapbook supply section of JoAnn's)
- rainbow colored cardstock
Step 2: Punch circles All of the circles came from a single sheet of paper each.
Step 3: Put them in rainbow order
Step 4: Sew them in a row, one after the other. This went really fast once I got the hang of it. I lined one of the scallops with the needle guide on my basic foot. I didn't even have to stop the needle once I got going. I sewed a 20 foot banner in about 5 minutes.
Voila! You have a fun, colorful birthday banner! I got the colored cardstock at JoAnn's for about $3.99. The paper punch was $14.99, but I'm going to pretend I already had that (like a good crafter should) and not count that toward the budget!
